Today is one of my favorite day's of the entire year. It's the Man of the House's birthday.
I've been searching my brain for a clever post idea to celebrate today. Last year I did a post from the grand baby's point of view, and the year before I did 41 Reasons why I love him. But this year, the clever just wasn't coming.
So, I decided to go with the sincere. Here are a few things I want to celebrate about him on his birthday:
He's a great husband and father (and grandfather): He works his behind off to support this family. He leads with strength, encouragement, and kindness. He makes each of us feel valued, loved, and safe. He is the glue that holds this family together. And he puts up with me - trust me, that is saying a LOT.
He's capable and talented: Walk through our house with me, and I'll show you a million things he's replaced, repaired, or rebuilt! There's rarely a need to call a handy man - I've got my handy man right here!
He inspires me: His work ethic. His kindness and compassion. His self discipline. His selflessness. All things I admire and pray every day that our children have inherited from him.
He is my best friend: He makes me laugh. He encourages me to be more than I think I can, to do things that scare me, and to chase my dreams. And he is there to comfort me when things don't go as I had hoped or when my feelings are hurt. To help me along when things are tough. To dry my tears when I cry.
He is the love of my life: He is the biggest blessing in my life. The best thing that ever happened to me. I thank God everyday for letting me spend my life with him.
Happy birthday puddin' pop! I love you!
